In " Tordenskiold " we follow the only 29 -year-old vice admiral Tordenskiold and his valet Cold . The year is 1720, the peace is signed, the war is over and the naval hero has no idea what he should do with his life. Cold persuades him to take the suitor journey to England, but the trip develops into an amusing and grotesque journey from Christianshavn , down through Denmark over the border and into the north German kingdoms . ' Tordenskiold ' is an atypical and cheeky period film and a portrait of a friendship between a master and his servant.Written by
I just watched this movie on DVD and I'm glad I did not go to the cinema to see it. This movie is awful.
I understand that it is supposed to be a comedy - and therefor more of a story about Tordenskiold than Tordenskiold's story. But it is not funny. And in the failed attempt of being funny it manages to tarnish the legacy of one of the greatest naval officers who ever lived.
It is not the acting - the actors are doing a great job with what they've got to work with. But the script is poorly written and as a viewer I am left with a feeling that something is missing from the story.
It is to bad. Because the story of Tordenskiold - and in this case his death - is a story that could have been so much better.
One thing I did like was the plot twist at the end ... Never saw that coming ...
